Summer crafts should be fun and easy and this colorful paper crabs craft is just that. Make the paper circles, and crabs out of smaller circles. Or even make the background circle a sun.
Crabs are so fun to observe. Tiny little creatures on the beach, walking funnily.
They clean their bodies and just enjoy resting on the sun.
And if one crab wants to invade another crab’s territory, they have a little fight.
To make sure there are no fights between our crabs, we’re giving each of then their own safe space – a circle.
If you love crabs as much as we do, you will find this project amusing for sure.
Plus, these crabs can’t pinch like real ones, they are completely harmless.
